They’re here, minty and slightly grassy in flavor, and of course bitter. Especially in the finish, where they linger nicely on the tongue and balance the beer perfectly. To be sure, the bitterness won’t be considered overpowering by experienced beer geeks, but it will be noticed. And it does blend so wonderfully with the toasty malt flavors.
Alcohol is about half again as strong as most beers at 7.5%. I really, really like this beer, and I’m giving it five stars. Sure, it’s not as big and hoppy as some super-IPAs, but it is so perfectly balanced between bitter, grassy, herbal hops and caramel and toasty malt that you could just drink glass after glass. Balance is a beautiful thing, after all.
Just the thing to snap you out of an average evening, and propel you into Maximus overdrive.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
